Quotes of the Week

  • ky3: Indexed monads are just categories in the category of endofunctors, what's the problem?
  • tac: I guess I'm just living in a fantasy world where the docs tell you how to use such a basic API :P
  • shachaf: 3.0 is an edwardk phase, not just a version number. It's like Picasso's Blue Period.
  • cmccann: Clearly the reason why edwardk uses Haskell now is because every C++ compiler has a restraining order against him.
  • shachaf: I'm not sure what your question is, but maybe lens is the answer.
  • cmccann: * cmccann has concluded that lenses are just a category whose objects are english prepositions and whose morphisms are all unsafeCoerce
  • shachaf: Some people, when asking about a problem in #haskell, get a link to okmij.org. Now they have two problems.
  • quicksilver: It returns undefined for convenience. I'm not really sure it's that convenient, but that's why.
  • edwardk: cmccann: let me get this straight you are saying that someone [mm_freak] who by their very nick admits to being a freak did something freakish?
